Children ‘can access mobile porn’

The BBC published an article recently, highlighting that ‘Children can access internet porn via mobile phones due to a loophole in phone safeguards.’  

The study was carried out by Which? magazine and the results are staggering.

  • Youngsters are able to obtain codes for adult websites by paying for them using premium rate text messages.
  • To support its claims of a loophole, Which? researchers got codes for eight porn sites using an O2 phone registered to a 15-year-old girl.

This is clearly a dangerous loophole and one that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. I welcome your comments on this subject.
